How to print CPE+ on UM3


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to print CPE+ on UM3

Hi All,

I need print very strong parts from materials such as CPE+ or PC. I know that UM3 not support CPE+ and PC for this moment. But I have few questions.

1. Heating bed

How UM3 can provide 110deg celsia which is recomended for printing this materials, when my UM3 can make only 100C? I use DIY door for closing print chamber.

2.print core

When I try print (transparent CPE+) on AA core, I have many carbonize parts on final result. Support from Ultimaker means that for this materials will be release completely new print core for this materials?

If is only about trying find good settings for printing on current printcores I can try find him :)

3.Date of release new cores

are some information about releasing all new features for UM3? Printcores, Cura?

Thanks for reply

    Update firmware on printer.

    Last stable version of Cura.

    I am printing now with CPE+ (Ultimaker transparent) , 0.6 profile on Cura, an coach at HO scale (1:87).

    As soon as i finish i will upload photos.

    PS. My bed is at 109 degree Celsius, no door.

    The carbonized pieces you mentioned (Black Stuff in the print) is probably from the filament absorbing moisture. If you are using PVA for any reason, you may be picking some of that up as well.

    But as Gigi said, Latest firmware and software will make the printing more automatic since there are now presets that allow for these materials and their associated temps.
